The insane

Global warming arguments have moved from the unreal to the insane.

This article says that warmer tempetures will lead to sicker children (isn't it odd that my kids tend to get more sick when it's colder out and they are indoors more; hmm....)

Add this to more hurricanes, tornados, no jet stream, more disease, blah

One of the recent "environmental crises" to befall us is the huge number of children in Africa being stricken by malaria. Charitable groups, and some government agencies, are rushing to provide mosquito nets to alleviate the problem. Of course, malaria was well on its way to extinction when some great environmentalist decided that DDT was harmful to birds (which later study says it wasn't, I understand). So the birds lived and the children died. Where's the problem?

The same is true of global warming and tobacco bans. Yes, we can take drastic government action and avert a small chance of a slightly negative result on a miniscule number of people 20 or 100 years from now. In the meantime, the economy is crippled, people lose their jobs, medical care, and in some cases children will starve because of government action to "save the planet." Lord, save us from those who would save us.

Something else occurs to me. These power-hungry politicians want you to believe that driving gas-guzzlers is the cause of the problem, or at minimum it's about the only thing they mention (other than not having enough flourescent lights in the house.) But aren't they the ones telling us we're going to run out of oil in 20 years (and doing their best to insure it)? So how can they say that SUVs are going to be the problem for the next 100 years? In 20 years, half of our cars will be hybrids, full electric, or hydrogen fuel cell. Long range prognostication on technology should be left to the science fiction writers.
